Why Lesson Planet?
Young scholars determine the heat of fusion of ice. For this heat of fusion lesson plan, students use a calorimeter to measure the molar heat of fusion of ice. Young scholars determine the heat required to melt one mole of ice using hot water and ice to measure the temperature changes of both. They answer 4 post lab questions and compare their data to other students. They write an equation for the melting of ice including kJ required.
